I am scheduled for November 13. I am terrified but also want this done very much. Random people tell me scary tales all the time. I keep hearing that 6 hrs of surgery is very dangerous and the anesthesia is dangerous for that long??????? I know it will hurt but I sure do not wNt a blood clot!!! Tips from survivors much appreciated.

We can be surgery buddies as I am scheduled on the 13th as well!!!! LOL Don't let other people get you down with scary comments...I have had one person in person in particular be unsupportive, but I look at the stats and realize that I will be ok! I am healthy and this is not emergency surgery :) They have also estimated that my surgery will take 6 hours (TT/BL) and I was hesitant about that, but I have heard so many times that the "take-off and landing" part of the anesthesia is more of a worry than the actual time under as long as it is less than 8 hours. Your surgeon probably also puts precautions in place (leg compressors etc). I plan on walking every 2-3 hours, even if just for a few minutes, and doing ankle pumps etc. I am nervous too...but more just wanting to get it over with as I have been waiting 13 loooong years to do this for myself :) We will be fine :)

Congratulations! My surgery is on the 11th. So we can recover together ;) Don't listen to the Debbie Downers. ..In fact I haven't told too many people b/c I don't want to hear their negative comments. Any surgery is risky, so that is why they have trained professionals! Good luck to you ♡

My MM is on the 25 Nov and i am happy, nervous, anxious.

It's a type of compression garment. Some women like to wear them after they take off the one their plastic surgeon gives them; they feel it gives them more support.

I am having my MM on the 25 Nov includes lift and full tummy tuck, I wanted to do this procedure for so long but glad I did not because I got pregnant with my third daughter in May of last year blessings) and now I am done having kids. I am worried about my recovery time my husband only can take care of me for 7 days and he is back to work, and then I am alone with my little love bug who is 8 months old do not know how I am going to do this....:( Also I am trying to lose at least 10lbs before my surgery , I was 128lbs before my daughter now I am 145lbs and 5'5" , I have been working out like crazy for the past 3 months no pounds shed yet ugh ...frustrated

I am worried about my aftercare as well :( I have 3 kids....13, 4, and 2. But the 2 month old has developmental delays and cannot climb stairs or get up on things, so I don't know how I am going to get by without lifting him??? I do have my husband home the first week, and my teen is off for Thanksgiving the second week, but I don't want to make my older son do very much :( No family close by either. My scale has not budged in 2 weeks!!! I am sooo disappointed at this weight loss plateau! I do not eat any processed foods at all and I exercise 4-5 days a week. I have no idea of how to get this scale moving as I really don't think it would be healthy to restrict my intake much more. You are not alone :(
